Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Oh Deer, the library's here, time to browse


Flagstaff Library Bookmobile visits the North Rim once a month from June thru September. It’s only here for about an hour and can get quite busy. Sure is an appreciated service, especially when many towns are closing libraries.

Being in the middle of nowhere can mean a lot of time for reading for some. (see Kaibab squirrely Park Ranger) Or in my case spending way too much time online.

I always check out at least 6 books, plus 3-4 DVDs and sometimes I even watch one.

Less than 100 yards (914.4 meters) away Mom browses with her twins.

At one time I used to finish a book every 2-3 days now I am lucky to get through one in 6 months. I just do not seem to have the time anymore. I LOVE reading and always have.

Gaelyn said...

Yes, pre-blogging I read all the time, having several books going at once. Now I try to read while waiting for webpages to show up, especially when on dialup. Oh I do refer to my many field guides.

Have a great weekend Joan. Pick up a book.

I have never been able to get to that Bookmobile, I am usually the one one the gate when he arrives! He did tell me that you can go online and "order" a book, so maybe I can do that next season and have someone pick them up for me. Hmmmmmm......

I LOVE libraries; how COOL that the Bookmobile visits your area! I'm going to my local library this morning, but I doubt if I will see any deer browsing. ;)

Jazz said...

The bookmobile and the deer...I'm loving where you live.

That book mobile is awesome! An hour is definitely not very long at all. What an amazing summer you must be having there at the Grand Canyon. I am loving your photos and looking forward to following your blog! Cheers.

The advantage of the cabin, no web. We always make a run to the library before we go and I can unsually finish at least two books in the week or so we are there. Of course, I have a lot of catching up to do on line when we get home.
Your season must be drawing to a close. You have inspired me, though, to get to the North Rim next summer.

Bookmobiles are wonderful for those who cannot get to a library. Reading is so important for young and old alike.
Books are a good source of great adventures and learning...
Enjoy your working weekend, Gaelyn :)

Jo said...

Gaelyn,what a lovely idea the bookmobile is. I love the mommy deer and her precious twins. Thanks for sharing this post.

Barb said...

Love your play on words, Gaelyn! I'm a reader, too - actually just invested in a Kindle, which I am really enjoying. Many books right at my fingertips all the time!

At the recent county fair, they had a book sale. I loaded up on a lot of outdoor nonfiction? for a quarter a book. But libraries are second best to used book stores. But mine are for my study in my home.

I so would like to be your neighbour!

Heaven is a book store.

I always loved the Bookmobile. When my kids were little we would take our little red wagon and walk down the road to the bookmobile and fill the darned thing up and everyone would be happy. I miss the bookmobile!! MB

Gaelyn: Fun post about the book mobile and the deer right there are just so special.

Love the idea of a book mobile Gaelyn. I have always been a big reader. Well before blogging anyway. Now I 'read' animal and flower guides. LOL.. I am catching up on all the posts I have missed... Michelle

Elaine said...

How wonderful that you have the bookmobile come to the park. I used to take my kids to a bookmobile. I always need to have a book or two or three on hand to read.

Janie said...

that's a long drive for the bookmobile, but I'm sure it means a lot to those who live on the north rim.
Cute fawn twins!

Pat said...

My mother worked on a bookmobile as a re-entry job when we kids were teens. She really enjoyed it...did it for several years and then became a part-time clerk in the library, a perfect place for a book-o-holic like her!

Louise said...

That would be better than the circus coming to town.

jeannette stgermain said...

A book mobile is such agreat solution when you're living at a remote spot - reading a book comes for me before the computer LOL

Ruth said...

We had a bookmobile come to our neighbourhood for years and I always enjoyed going with our children. We had no deer outside. My reading has really decreased since I started blogging and I am trying to read more this summer. Once I get into a good book it is hard for me to stop.

Great to have the books almost at ones doorstep :-) I have the same here in Sweden at my countryhouse but our bus is not as goodlooking with colours as yours. Thanks for commenting on my blog, welcome back;-)

My reading has really slowed down since I started blogging too! I guess it's one of the things that takes a backseat to the computer nowadays. I do read news, other blogs, and research online though - does that count? A Kindle would be perfect for you - I really want one too, but I'm waiting for them to come down in price...

What fun; it's good to know these buses still are around. My husband worked in a two room rural school years ago and the book bus would come once a week from Great Falls. I think it's a great resource.
